Yep, we got some dingy running lights that we don't always deploy. We also sometimes have been know to run with scissors
I think Colregs calls shinning a light in the other guys wheelhouse "embarrassing
the vessel" (rule 36). Always liked that phrase
You are sailing in our world. Yes VHF 16 can get pretty annoying with radio checks and "xxxx habormaster, we are the pretty white boat looking for a mooring for the evening" when xxxx is 50 miles away, and the caller is at 25 watts. At least we all know where the pretty white boat is staying tonight.
Enjoy our neighborhood Mini! At least the water is warm, and the SW'er has been blowing pretty darn nice!
